Sorry Sold Out

Strong Rebloomer
Tall, dark and handsome with a strong gravitational pull! All eyes are drawn to the dark purple-blue 4 clusters of flowers on towering stems. Its reblooming tendency parades flowers into September. One of the last Lily of the Nile to remain in bloom. Stunning in mass plantings, easy to grow and needs minimal attention. Typically grown in warmer climates, Agapanthus Galaxy Blue was introduced by Walters Gardens who have successfully overwintered this African Lily in their heavy-snow, Michigan winters for six years. The rounded flower heads comprised of a galaxy of star-shaped blossoms rise on tall sturdy stems from rounded mounds of lush arching foliage.

Agapanthus General Information

Agapanthus are beautiful garden focal points and also stunning when planted in mass in borders. They grow in upright clumps of arching strap-like foliage. A favorite of hummingbirds and butterflies. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Agapanthus Plant Care

Well-drained soil. Feed with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season. In their natural habitats, Agapanthus grow on sides of mountains where their roots are often root bound. A densely-packed root system often produces better flower production. Divide clumps every 4-5 years in early spring.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
